Pakatan Rakyat leaders are fond of telling voters that the BN is filled with power crazy politicians but look who’s talking!
The DAP is filled with leaders who are Members of Parliament, state assemblymen and exco members all rolled in one.
It look as if that in the DAP there is such a terrible shortage of credible leaders that no one can contests these seats except themselves.
So we have Lim Guan Eng who is CM, state assemblyman and MP. It’s the same with Teresa Kok, Dr Ramasamy, Chow Kon Yeow, Lim Hock Seng and the list just goes on and on.
One lone voice who wants to put a stop to this nonsense is Karpal Singh but his recent call has been received with muted voices. Why should they want to listen to him? Why would they want to give up their allowances and perks.
An MP gets about RM13,000, the state assemblyman allowance is RM6,000 and as state exco member, there’s an additional RM5,000. He also get a driver, a car and the utility bills in the houses are taken care of. State exco members also fly business class when they travel. If it’s outside Malaysia, they can opt for first class.
Guan Eng tells the press that he prefers to fly economy but “gets upgraded.” Come on, who upgraded you, MAS ah? If you have been traveling so much on economy class, you can’t possibly amass so many Enrich points to get upgraded into business class.
So stop all this con job and admit the economy class travelling is just a stunt. Yes, economy class when you travel to KL.
Add all these allowances together, they hover around RM20,000 and we haven’t even add in other travelling claims.
But it’s not just about the money? How can a single person effectively run a parliamentary, state constituencies and state matters? It’s one big bullshit that they can handle all the problems effectively.
Or is it that the DAP leaders gets away with these because all they need to do is to issue press statements to hentam the government and voters would regard them as sufficient?
And if voters need help, refer them to the MCA! In fact, the Serdang MP Teo Nie Ching even referred her mom to the MCA for medical help!
No wonder LGE now has two shoplots in Malacca and fixed deposits which adds up to a million ringgit. Sure, a million ringgit is no big deal these days but he is not that poor either, as he wishes to project.
